College Advisory Council

The College Advisory Council (CAC) is comprised of external business, technology, allied health, and education professionals who provide advice and guidance to CW in maintaining its position as the premier career-focused college in the greater metropolitan area. Input from the Council members helps drive change in curricula and programs of study delivered by The College. Council members belong to program-specific groups relevant to their industry experience and meet with the chairpersons of those departments, together with representatives from Admissions and Career Services, to ensure that programs are designed to prepare students to meet the needs of regional employers. The Council provides guidance on selecting student learning outcomes and performance competencies and regularly reviews and comments on student learning outcomes assessment results. The Council also assists the Office of Career Services by providing advice on employment and internship opportunities.  Council members meet yearly.
